How can I install software or packages without Internet (offline)?
I have upgraded Ubuntu 11.10 (amd64) to 12.04 (amd64) on one of the laptops I have,
I have another laptop which is also running 11.10 (amd64) I want to use the packages downloaded on the first laptop on the second
laptop so that both have Ubuntu 12.04
I checked on first laptop (now running 12.04 ) downloaded upgrades are residing in
I have done an sftp for those packages from laptop 1 to laptop 2.
On the laptop 2 I have tried putting those package files into
and then just firing the upgrade process
and unfortunately this does not work and rather than picking the packages from
it goes to some thing like
http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main qemu-utils amd64 1.0+noroms-0ubuntu13 [353 kB]
and so on and is downloading things,
Now what I want to know is how do I make sure do-release-upgrade uses these in my laptop and does not downloads 700 mb of updates because this will take 8-10 hours at my end so I want to utilize the upgrades which were downloaded during the upgrade process on one of the systems. If there is a way in this situation let me know.
